"Imaging Her Erotics - Carolee Schneemann" is the result of a year's collaboration between Beatty and Schneeman. Beatty's original video sequences intertwine with Schneemann's own vocabulary and visual style, creating a cumulative history of Schneemann's recurrent themes and symbols. Schneemann's command of painting, sculpture, performance and video art has consistently provided a provocative investigation into art history and depictions of sexuality. Her works through the past three decades are central to the art of the 1990s -- especially the prevalent view of the body as a site of shifting identities and political struggle. With Imaging Her Erotics, Beatty has created a feminist alternative to the traditional "portrait of an artist".
- In all Schneeman's montages, films and performances, there is an insistent repetition of disparate motifs - within each work and from work to work. In this video, Beatty uses the constant relocation of themes to suggest a cumulative continuity; from montage to montage, each motif is readjusted, repositioned, dismembered and remembered in new contexts. This video includes documentation of four recent installations: Venus Vectors (1998-89), Cycladic Imprints (1989-92), Scroll Paintings with Exploded TV (1990-91), and Video Rocks (1989-92) as well as interviews with Schneemann.
